Why we love our Excalibur Food Dehydrator:
Here at CFH we are in love with our Excalibur Food Dehydrator. Excalibur Food Dehydrators are well-made, sturdy, and reliable. They offer low-temperature settings making them perfect for fermenting and culturing (counter-top yogurt starters, dairy kefir, kombucha, or vegetable ferments) even when your home is on the cooler side. (We suggest barely turning the temperature setting on and running with the door propped open or removed for a nice room-temperature setting.) The Excalibur Food Dehydrator can even double as a yogurt maker for culturing our Greek yogurt starter (or any other yogurt starter requiring heat). As a bonus, they are also energy efficient! According to the manufacturer, an Excalibur Food Dehydrator only uses $.04-$.05 of electricity per hour!

  • From Molly at 12/2/2011 4:16 PM
    • Is this dehydrator tall enough to make yogurt in?
    • It all depends how you choose to make your yogurt. The 5-tray will not hold a quart size mason jar, but you can put the yogurt into half-pint mason jars and then you have individual size servings. A pint size jar would fit as well.

Awesome product Review by littlekatea

I've used my dehydrator almost every day since I got it.
Made several fruit leathers (which my grandson loves). I've dehydrated whole meals too.
I love that it has a temperature control & a fan.
Well worth the price.
This is an appliance I will enjoy for many years.

Fantastic Review by Leah

Definitely worth buying the additional mats for making fruit leather. This dehydrator is ideal for making yogurt. Super consistent, plus I can fit a gallon bowl of yogurt in the dehydrator.

Great value for a versatile product Review by Mira

The dehydrator has worked great so far. The fan is a bit louder than I expected but even with it running while I watched TV it was fine, it just became white noise.

I appreciate the extensive, informative booklet on dehydrating foods that came with it.

Most of all, I am really happy that the product is made in the USA. It looks like it's built to last, and I look forward to using it for many years to come.
